Web Development Intern
About Corkboard Concepts
We are a Strategic Marketing Agency that is Data-Centric – we appreciate and value the marketing mix including traditional media but understand the convergent point in digital and value data first.
We operate in an industry that’s constantly changing and at rates never seen before. Timeliness is a factor in what we do but at the end of the day our primary motivation is not solely first-to-market, but instead best-in-class.
Our goal is to understand each of our partners’ unique business offerings and support them in growing in a way that is cognizant of their internal stakeholders, end-customer and resources. We help in defining strategy, the marketing decision-making process and enabling internal data points to achieve goals.
The team at Corkboard Concepts brings a level of knowledge and clarity to every campaign or partner interaction to provide comfort and understanding in order to enable bilateral communication and to achieve business success. Simply put, we’re better working when we’re working together, and we need the support of our clients as much as they need ours.
Corkboard Concepts is an advertising agency based in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. We are a full-service agency with a foundation in digital advertising. Our agency is on pace to develop more than 50 websites in the year 2020.
Corkboard Concepts is looking for a WordPress website developer with experience in development using primarily DIVI. If this intern were to have experience in working with pre-vetted plug-ins that would be a bonus.
This internship will be to gain experience, not so much learn WordPress website development. We are looking for about 20 hours of work per week through the rest of this calendar year.
Work will be on a project basis throughout the duration of the internship, with the opportunity to continue work past 2020 if it is a good fit for the intern and Corkboard Concepts.
This internship will be a mix of working in our office in Pittsburgh, PA, and remotely if necessary.
Pay: $1,000.00 per month
We are allowing interns to work remotely when they’d like after an initial onboarding period.

- Enhance the speed of the websites for faster load.

The above indicates regular work, however, we encourage all members of our team to bring new ideas to the table to better develop processes and services. Other work may be available, specifically for those with an eye on user experience and design.
- Minimally: Working towards a degree related to design or web development
- 1-3 years work experience in a related field
- Strong independent working, project management and organizational skills
- Proficient with WordPress
- Familiarity with Divi or comparable themes.
More advanced skillsets of the above are always preferred but a willingness to learn and continuously develop trumps all of the above.
